PLANO, Texas, Nov. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Argon Medical Devices, a leading provider of device solutions for Interventional Radiology, Vascular Surgery, Interventional Cardiology, and Oncology, announced the launch of the Kodiak™ Dual Port Coaxial Introducer Kit for precise and streamlined introduction of diagnostic and therapeutic devices into the vasculature.
The Kodiak Dual Port Coaxial Introducer Kit is engineered for versatility, as it applies to various vascular procedures. Kodiak allows physicians to utilize a robust, large-bore sheath and a unique Y-shaped adapter to introduce multiple components simultaneously through a single access site. In doing so, Kodiak can simplify complex procedures where the rigor of the procedures demands a robust device to provide treatment efficiently.
"Complex IVC filter retrievals require stable and reliable access that can accommodate various retrieval methods. Kodiak provides reinforced support required for all advanced techniques of filter retrieval in one coaxial and valved system, providing the operator with the greatest flexibility in their procedural algorithm," said Dr. Julie Bulman, Interventional Radiologist, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
"We take great pride in unveiling yet another innovative device designed for interventionalists who rely on top-tier products to achieve successful procedural outcomes. The Kodiak was developed to fulfill the unmet need for a durable introducer system resilient enough to accommodate the anatomical diversity frequently encountered in vascular procedures. We are enthusiastic about adding Kodiak to our portfolio and anticipate that this new product will advance our mission to improve the lives of caregivers and the patients they serve," said George Leondis, President & CEO, Argon Medical.
